Film art usually includes the most important members of the cast, depicting them in a way that emphasizes their role or personality in the film. Also often included in movie posters of this variety are phrases that attempt to sum up the movies mood or outlook. For example, the poster for Empire Records includes the phrase “They’re selling music but not selling out.”
The iconic film poster is popular for many reasons. It can be used as a tribute to a person’s favorite actor, actress or motion picture, and is also popular with film buffs who want to memorialize a specific era of the film industry.
